2/10 Poor

DUSTY DIRTY ROOM! Rude receptionists Matty & Stan
Matty and Stan spoilt my entire experience!!! They ignored me! Matty was EXTREMELY RUDE!! Unhelpful!! Unprofessional and curt.... he lets down Holiday Inn and I’ll never ever stay there again!!! My room was FILTHY!!! I requested a Disabled room at time of booking; they didn’t even have the decency to reply or even accommodate me!!! When a gentleman upon check-in was trying to arrange a different room Matty very aggressively and nastily told him DO NOT MOVE THE MAN IN THE ROOM and DO NOT ASSIST in trying to accommodate a disabled person!!! I would like a refund of one nights stay!!!

All good for what I wanted, Stayed in room 225 and a little disappointed to see the state of the leather chair, very tatty.

10/10 Exceptional

Very Happy.
We used the Holiday Express Poole because our ferry arrived in Poole from Jersey at around 7.40pm and we didn't want to drive home to Cornwall the same night, so extended our holiday by staying here. We found the hotel easily and were very happy with our room and the breakfast. The parking was free because the system was "down" for the car park, so happy day's.

Very tired hotel
Tired, that’s the only way to describe this Holiday Inn, I decided to eat in the “restaurant” had the bacon burger it came in a stale bun this was enough to help me decide to skip the breakfast the next day
